Having a forced month off of blogging has gave me a rest I didn’t know I needed, and now that I’m able to blog again I’m back with so much more excitement than I had before! Thankfully, I have two photoshoots from last week to blog. We still haven’t recovered the photos that may have been lost from before, but I’m choosing to be happy that at last I uploaded thousands of photos to social media!
I bought this dress off Etsy from a shop called SpaceBearsDesigns. It had been on my wishlist for months, literally months, and I finally decided to go for it now that fall is here and I can actually wear long sleeves. And I am so glad I did! It is in excellent condition; it feels like a brand new dress, even though it’s from the 1950’s. I love finds like this; it was affordable, arrived fast, and exceeded my expectations upon arrival. I’m so excited to wear it through the colder months!
I also think I may need to find a few more brown-toned lipsticks. I am wearing one from NYX, and I didn’t think I would love it but I do! I’m discovering more and more that I tend to prefer a simple red lip, but I still love to play with colors. Especially with Halloween coming up, I’m thinking I may need to do some vintage Halloween makeup looks (and costumes).
As of right now, my two ideas are to do Hedy Lamarr’s dreamy star-enveloped look from Ziegfeld Girl for a Halloween party I hope to host, and then for trick-or-treating with our kids, have my husband be Hook, myself be Wendy, Asa be Peter Pan, and Evie be Tinkerbell. I really hope I can pull all of these things together in the next month and a half before the fun begins!
Do you have any plans for costumes yet this year? Show me photos! I would love to see what all of you are doing!
